    A few more. These were ratttle canned with two different colors, only on the backside of the mount. Up against the tractor is very difficult for me to see much difference. The one with the oil line is CHEVY orange red. The other case power red. It seems the power red may be a better quality product, despite the color. It laid down thicker and has a higher sheen to it.

    edit: Chevy not Chrysler

    One is Chrysler orange red?
    May have to reconsider my use of Rustoleum Lobster Red.
    Kind of hard to beat at $29 for a six pack, though.

    Although I forgot to mention that I use is with the crystal clear gloss. That does drive up the price.

    Just a side note. The power red in cans [at least here] is not the same as quarts. Thin and pale [probably due to less solids] so don't expect it to match up with gun sprayed paint. I only use it on stuff that is not normally visible, [or I don't care.]

    I'm late to this discussion, but will add my twopennies anyway. With no CIH dealer within a hundred miles and none of the farm store carrying Case colors I finally hit on a close match process. I had tried Kubota and AC oranges and they looked ok, as long as it was a whole tractor. But if just doing parts it wasn't close enough.

    So I tried some mix and match with Ford red and Kubota orange from Tractor Supply. No pics yet, but it looks close enough for me. I'm not a restorer, just a 'fixer'. It was 3 parts Kubota, one part Ford, one part reducer and the recommended hardener. Hardener only on hood and fenders, not frame and small stuff. Too hard to mix accurately with just a few ounces total.

    I don't like to order paints as delivery is too slow for my lack of patience and if ordering gallons the cost goes way up and the paint goes bad before it gets used up.

    Ken next time look for Chevy orange red. The difference I see is shine. Case shines more. I also saw both Kubota orange and ac orange , neither of which was as close as Chevy orange red.

    I've used chevy orange some. It is a fair match, but not available in qts. Only aerosol which I really don't like. Too thin, low gloss and poor coverage. The Tractor Supply covers really well and reddish tints are notorious for being poor on coverage anyway. But the aerosol is really handy on small stuff.
